I thought I would post this no watches but my dad is in the top photo they were in the Aleution's in WW2 some one in his unit made a book my dad gave me a copy.The first aircraft is a PBY they like that one the best then they started using the PV-1's they did not care for those if you go down in the water you have a chance with a PBY the water so cold you would not live long.He went to TBM avenger's later in the war.By the way my dad was age 16 at the time he joined the Navy.

I found this photo in my cruise book from when I was aboard the USS Proteus AS-19.It's a photo of R-1 Div. those were the diver's.The Proteus was a sub tender so the diver's would inspect the sub haul's and do repair on them.Look what's on there wrist Seiko 6309 you can't miss the cushion case.


Look's like this model.The year I was on the Proteus was from 1980-1981.

T Enzo Liguori.

I know your post is almost 3 years old, but I just had to comment. I hope you are still around this forum. Thank you for your sensitive statement. My father did the Anzio landing (British 8th Army) and he was wounded. Fortunately not fatal.

Best regards and peace

Nice old pics Gerd. I'm not sure I could i.d. the watch used by the pilot with the fox pup. It seems to be a chronograph. I think you know more about these watches then I do.

With a black dial, the last picture could easily be an issued D-H watch. (It seems the man with the pipe is maybe a little too happy about that stick granade!)

I found this photo while rummaging though some old family photos; it is my Father, Joe L. Stewart (seated) taken during WWII, or shortly after. I’m not sure what all the test equipment is, but he worked on (what was then) a classified project called LORAN. I believe he later taught it at the Coast Guard Academy.

New member - first time post, reckon a photograph shouldn't show how much I have to learn about timepieces.
This is an image (out of copyright)from the Australian War Memorial Site

Lots of good images.

Here are some Hamilton Military watches, not in actual use but still may be interesting to some Military Watch collectors.
